Children of Ruin by Adrian Tchaikovsky Book Summary

The astonishing sequel to Children of Time, the award-winning novel of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet.

Thousands of years ago, Earth's terraforming program took to the stars. On the world they called Nod, scientists discovered alien life -- but it was their mission to overwrite it with the memory of Earth. Then humanity's great empire fell, and the program's decisions were lost to time.

Aeons later, humanity and its new spider allies detected fragmentary radio signals between the stars. They dispatched an exploration vessel, hoping to find cousins from old Earth.

But those ancient terraformers woke something on Nod better left undisturbed.

Children of Ruin (Adrian Tchaikovsky) Book Reviews

Tough read compared to first bookIt is a good story, but kept repeating the same character information over and over each time they came back. Either like having to reread the date profile before you go every date. And you are on date number 12 now. I get it, you like octopus. Or like a sophisticated toddler who does not shut up by saying the same thing over and over. I get it, I know who this character is…. Or to much that I forgot who was who. It took a lot of will power to finish this book. Loved the 1st book!!!!.. second felt like required under grad reading of the required elective you don’t want take but have to take to get the degree. But…. I will reserve the third book..Score: 3/5

Not up to level of CoTWhile Children of Time is a favorite of mine, having read it twice, this story just doesn’t carry the same level of fascination for me. It’s a big epic with intriguing creatures and a vast scope but it bogs down, becoming muddled toward what I found to be a rushed and lightly sketched ending. Can’t recommend, but read CoT for an exciting, creepy treat..Score: 3/5

Knocked it out of the park againThey did it again. Another stellar book. I still think about this and children of time years later. I think this has surpassed End of Eternity as my most recommended book. The detail and creativity of the writing and the obvious amount of research put in to these books is phenomenal..Score: 5/5

Absolutely fantasticA worthy sequel to his first book, Children of Time. Tchaikovsky has avoided the cardinal sin of repeating himself, and has instead rhymed with himself to produce something just as beautiful. This book is well worth the read..Score: 5/5
